The UAMS MammoVan Program, a partnership between UAMS’ Department of Radiology and Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, was created to respond to the needs of women living in the 26 counties with no permanent certified mammography facilities. The MammoVan staff will work with rural primary care providers, community health centers, and other local community organizations to establish sites for screening in these 26 counties. Free screenings will be made available to eligible uninsured women.
